Civil Designer 2014 is 4 times more powerful!
This is simply the most exciting time ever for Civil Designer with the build up to the launch of Civil Designer 2014, which is currently in Beta stage and being tested heavily from every angle by ourselves. We will be releasing the Beta version to specific clients to test at the beginning of next month (November) while we continue with our own in-house testing.
The digital terrain modelling component has been optimized to import over 4 million points in less than 1 minute and can handle more than 95 million points, compared to the 25 million points of the 2013 version. Civil Designer can further triangulate 6 million points in under a minute and it's just getting faster the more we work and tweak it! We also provide a tool to strip down LIDAR surveys into useful DTM models.
Official launch date expected to be early next year in Feb or March.
Bringing you the fastest road design ever!
Our 2014 Beta Version was tested against two other major international players in an intense showdown back in July this year. We are talking about a meeting of the heavyweights: Civil Designer – the number 1 in Africa, versus the number 1 competitor in Australia and the number 1 competitor in the USA.
The exercise mainly focused on Roads and Earthworks and was extremely positive and rewarding for us. Civil Designer 2014 will give you the fastest urban road design in the industry including intersections and roundabouts! We finished the various exercises while the competition had completed less than 20% of the design!
We have also had time to look at the few minor areas where we were rated 2nd and have hugely focused on those aspects to ensure that we will win all categories in the next showdown.
Largest Support Team on the continent just gets bigger!
NEW ADDITIONAL SUPPORT CONSULTANT
BTech: Civil Engineering: Urban Engineering
We are delighted to have a new member join our support consultant team, which continues to be by far the largest support team on the African continent for civil engineers.
Chris, who holds 7 years in the civil engineering consultancy environment, was previously employed at BVi Consulting Engineers in their Civil Engineering Division. He worked in a team participating in the geometric design for new highways and the rehabilitation of existing highways including their intersections & rest areas, both nationally and provincially. He has focused on the geometric design of urban road, as well as the hydrology calculations associated with catchment areas. During his previous employment at Sustainable Engineering Solutions, he worked on an array of designs, including the reticulation design of water, irrigation, foul sewer and stormwater networks and the geometric design of urban road. This coupled with extensive onsite supervision of civil engineering projects brings a practical component to his comprehensive design experience.
His passion for the field of civil engineering coupled with his sense of fulfilment in seeing and aiding others to the correct use of the design software leads us to believe that he will not only be an asset to our team, but moreover, to everyone who makes use of the support services offered by Knowledge Base.
